      1. How come I can’t find this formation when I am creating a custom playbook?

        1. Because the formation names are sometimes different in custom playbooks

  4. That play isn’t available, I’m editing my custom playbook and in the All Plays section, that set out of the Shotgun is not available and I can’t find that play in any of the other Wing Deep Offset formation

    1. The play is found in the Miami Dolphins playbook. All plays in the game can be found in custom playbooks they are just sometimes under different names.

  5. look in shotgun normal deep offset for this play if trying to use for a custom playbook

  6. best play to stop this play?
